I’m taking a moment in-between the craziness that is the end-of-school to daydream about summer and its dog days. To say that I cannot wait for these long, lazy days is an understatement. Warm breezes, sand under my feet, and seeing my kids’ sun-kissed faces dotted with newly minted freckles--It’s the best time of year for my family and the time when we truly kick back and enjoy one another fully.
This relaxed way of life definitely feeds into my style which fades from “classic” to “boho” without skipping a beat. I love stacks of bracelets, gems that are reminiscent of the sea like turquoise and mother-of-pearl, funky patterns, and gold against tan skin. Somehow summer wears boho style jewelry so well.
Here's what I'll be wearing when the weather heats up...
1. Julie Rofman Bracelets. Nothing is cooler than these hand-beaded beauties. A geometric mixture of matte, translucent, opaque, and shiny glass beads creates a striking color-field of sparkle. And, each beaded bracelet is inspired by some of the most beautiful and exotic places around the world: the carnival in Rio, the colorful architecture of Cuba, the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands, the nightlife of Ibiza...So, while you are relaxing at the beach, let your bracelet take you on an exotic trip.
2. Gypsies & Debutantes. The best part of summer is the spontaneity of it. You just never know when you will roll off the beach and right into dinner out at a restaurant. You need a piece of jewelry that's as comfortable at the beach as it is on the town. Enter in the Gypsies & Debutantes line of designer bracelets and necklaces. Their friendship bracelets are a go-to statement piece while the druzy and agate necklaces are the perfect piece to instantly dress up a t-shirt and shorts or a swimsuit coverup. Starting at $55.00, these necklaces are a can't-go-wrong.
3. Gold. There is nothing prettier to me than gold against a suntan. And, when you're traveling or at the beach, you want jewelry you don't have to worry about. That's why I love Jules Smith jewelry...it looks great, it's on-trend, well made and affordable. I'd say win, win, win.
4. A Great Bag. Last on my summer style list is the perfect beach bag. I love color and pattern, so Mar Y Sol handbags are a clear winner for me. Made from sustainable sisal and sea grass, these gorgeous bags scream warm weather, tropical beaches, and vacation.
I hope you have a wonderful summer!
As Always, Shine Bright!
